First Design Workshop A Big Success

We christened our new demonstration teaching studio last Saturday with our first Kitchen Design Workshop. After months of planning and construction everything was ready to go and the sold-out class went off with only a couple of minor glitches. We patterned our studio after the demonstration teaching model used by cooking schools with an overhead television monitor that allowed students to watch what Matthew and I were doing as they worked on their own design projects. The “sketch-cam” was an unexpected big hit as it allowed us to display some of the student’s design exercises on the big screen and analyze the results in real time.

Over the three hour session students learned about the three fundamental parts of kitchen design –and practiced their skills re-locating the kitchen in a renovation project, laying out the cabinetry, and then placing the appliances. The Kitchen Design Workshop is the first of four classes we will be offering over the fall. The others cover Green Design, Bathroom Design, and Furniture Layouts and follow the same hands-on learning model that everyone enjoyed so much last week. All of the Workshops run from 9:30-12:30 on Saturday morning will be repeated several times over the next few months.

To see the course in action, watch the video we produced to promote Slow Home Studio’s workshops at this weekend’s Calgary Home and Design Show.
